Rawhide gnome desktop acting up recently.  Have to restart several times 
to get desktop that is readable.  Several times screens are garbled. 
Here is a bit of an Xorg.0.log that may be a clue:

(EE) [mi] EQ overflowing.  Additional events will be discarded until 
existing events are processed.
(EE) Backtrace:
(EE) 0: /usr/bin/Xorg (xorg_backtrace+0x36) [0x46a4e6]

(EE) 20: /usr/bin/Xorg (0x400000+0x264fd) [0x4264fd]
(EE) [mi] These backtraces from mieqEnqueue may point to a culprit 
higher up the stack.
(EE) [mi] mieq is *NOT* the cause.  It is a victim.
(EE) [mi] EQ overflow continuing.  100 events have been dropped.

Any clues where the problem lies?  Just rawhide being rawhide?
